    Gerber 06 30-000118

    I have one on the way from amazon. The other day my CRKT M16-10KZ disappeared. I resigned to carry the Kershaw Leek with the bent tip.


    This seemed to fit the bill. Not sure it is THE knife I want but I will take it for a spin.

    I like the aggressive look of these knives, and I even own a combo edged Fury tactical general folder, myself. My issue with these is that the tanto point is designed for stabbing, and takes up valuable edge real estate, while the serrated edge is useless for most cutting tasks, and again, eats up blade space. I prefer a drop point or modified sheepsfoot plain edged folder these days, like the Benchmade Griptilian 550HG, or the Spyderco Delica4 for an EDC knife.
    The Fury is on the bottom of the pic below:

    The reason I was insistent on the tanto was that I use the blade edge as a scraper frequently. When I need to go out and do strip & refinish on a floor it is a godsend.

    Good reason, then.

    The CRKT M16-KZ was the first Tanto I owned and it proved its worth in my industry exceptionally fast. Half my crews have one now.
